coming up roses lyrics – adrianne

i’ve sung a million songs
still don’t feel like i belong
i still hide in the words
it’s a science now

i can fall back again
to the way i was then
i just can’t let it go
let it down

if i do this now

i’ll be coming up roses
coming clean
do what i say
say what i think
i mean, who knows
if i’ll ever show up
answer the phone
see what i’m really made of

am i still a bitter stone
better off left alone
i do miss what i know
but i can’t stay like this

if there’s something
you see in me
maybe i could try to be
i might a little help
to see what i’ve missed

a steady hand, a gentle kiss

coming up roses
coming clean
do what i say
say what i think
i mean, who knows
if i’ll ever show up
answer the phone
and see what i’m really made of

if i do this now
will you show me how

to come up roses
come clean
do what i say
say what i think
i mean, who knows
if i’ll ever shut up
hang up the phone
see what i’m really made of

roses
coming in clean
do what i say
say what i think
i mean, who knows
if i’ll ever shut up
answer the phone
and see what i’m really made of
